AydannStreams has revealed that even smaller Twitch streamers can be the victim of harassment regardless of their gender. 

On September 11, Aydann exposed a female viewer for going out of her way to target his girlfriend in what appears to be an extreme act of jealousy.

For a smaller stream, the chat can be a more intimate experience with the interactions between the streamer and his or her viewers being frequent. And while some relationships between the streamer and viewers can grow, they can also take a dark turn.

Eventually, after a female viewers grew a little too close to Aydann and sent some hurtful messages to his girlfriend, the streamer snapped.

According to Aydann, a few viewer started DMing him asking if he had a girlfriend. When he said yes and revealed who it was in his chat, she spent every stream trying to harass her. 

“You’ve been targeting my girlfriend since you came in here. I don’t want to sound like a dick, but you’re constantly trying to roast her, say she’s rude, ask if she done makeup well” Aydann began. “Dude, I don’t understand why. And you even DM’d her. Don’t DM my girlfriend.” 

But for his part, despite clearly upset, the upstart entertainer did have some advice for the overly-invested fan.

aydannstreams/InstagramAydannStreams had enough of the harassment from a female viewer.

“Don’t go after people’s relationships. Enjoy the content that they create. Don’t be the person that comes in all the time and be like ‘do they love you enough? Are they taking care of you enough? This that’. No. Nuh.” 

The content creator went on to explain in the replies that the female viewer had been banned and he posted the video to show that this kind of thing happens to male streamers too, just not as often. 

A lot of people in the comments, including females, praised Aydann for how he handled the situation. One, a mother of two boys, said she wanted to break the stigma that harassment only happens to women.

Aydann then revealed that this normally happens once or twice a month and that he recieved pictures he never asked for from women who found his personal Facebook account. 

It just goes to show that everyone can find themselves in unwanted situations.

Popular League of Legends streamer Robert ‘Hashinshin’ Brotz has claimed the FBI investigated him over allegations he was sexually harassing minors, and cleared him of any wrongdoing. He was permanently banned on Twitch over the claims.

Hashinshin was ostracized from the League of Legends community back in July, after claims the 30-year-old Twitch streamer sexually harassed underage girls by abusing his platform of power.

Other popular content creators, like Joedat ‘Voyboy’ Esfahani, stated that “Hashinshin is a manipular, predator, and worst of all [a] pedophile who used his platform to abuse so many underage girls over the years.”

However, the disgraced streamer has claimed he was investigated by the FBI and cleared of all wrongdoing.

“There has been an FBI investigation into me, and I have neither been jailed or charged with a crime. Some of you might not believe that. I have a freedom of information request [to prove my innocence publicly], but that can take up to a year,” Brotz said in a October 7 statement.

Numerous women came forward stories in July of Hashinshin grooming them while they were underage. However, Hashinshin has always maintained his innocence, claiming these stories were false, and that many of those who came forward have since deleted their statements.

He also stated that he was potentially looking into suing some of the alleged victims for defamation, stating they did a “public assessment of [his] character” that distorted what people thought of him.

“I was going to sue Alli for defamation ⁠— and I probably should have ⁠— but Alli is not a victim, and people started getting these really distorted views on what was happening,” he said, referring to one of the victims.

“Things aren’t as they seem, regardless of what they seem. I’m not a rich and powerful figure. They didn’t find that I did anything. I think a lot of this was a public assessment of my character, and a lot of people did this because they didn’t like me.

“I’ve been working on bettering myself over the last two years, and I think I’ve become a better person overall. It hurts a lot…to see all these people denying that.”

Brotz claimed that while he believed his accusers weren’t “all terrible people,” they betrayed his trust. He also said that while he believes they should apologize, he hopes no one in the community attacks them. He just wants to “go back to living a normal life.”

“I thought these were nice people, I thought I could trust them and work with them. That’s why my response to this was all sh*tty because I shouldn’t really have trusted anyone. I don’t think they’re all terrible people, but things really escalated,” he said.

“I don’t want anyone to attack them. I just want to go back to living a normal life. I just want to exist peacefully, and I hope people can start letting me do that. I hope this can change their minds in some way.”

Hashinshin remains permanently banned on Twitch despite his attempts to clear this name. He has also lost his Twitch partnership, and has instead moved to streaming on YouTube.
